Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.
Several other Quantum Vibe goodies are available for contributing to our campaign. More will be added during the campaign as it grows. So you'll want to stay tuned.

Cut to Dio Acharya, also wearing a ‘group-displacer’harness, stands with a middle-aged man, woman and teen-aged girl. Behind them are more rescues from Cedar Park Villas.
Caption: About 6 minutes later:
Middle-aged man: Hey, thanks for the rescue!
Middle-aged woman: I don’t know how to thank you!
Dio: Hey, it was the least I could do.
Dio confers with Guido
Dio: Well, that completes my list, who’s next?
Guido: That’s a tough question.
Guido: Now we’re-a down to the tough cases.
Dio and Guido:
Dio: Invaders and hostages together?
Guido: We gotta five a-rooms with mixes …
Guido: Three assholes and two hostages, two assholes and six hostages, like that.
Dio and Guido:
Dio: Give me one of the more challenging ones.
Guido: Ok, stand-by while I collect-a volunteers.
Guido: When we strike we gotta go together, ‘coz-a the first-a shot will alert the others.
Now Dio, Guido and Sargon (remember Sargon?), all with both displacer harnesses and arms.
Dio: I got three and two. What are you guys taking on?
Guido: Four anna seven. But Sargon is-a teaming with me.
Guido: He’s-a young but he’s gotta fast aim.
Cut to outside an apartment at the Villas. One of the Libérateurs is standing in the open door and calls to his partner standing just outside.
Caption: At that very same moment:
Lib 1: How many people did they say were being held here?
Lib 2: Three. Why?
Lib 1: Right now there’s zero. Sound the alarm.
